Two Britain’s Got Talent finalists, who began their careers in the borough, will take to the stage tonight in the live final of the talent show.

Two of the nation’s favourite acts, Jonathan and Charlotte and The Loveable Rogues, are set to perform in front of an audience of more than 10 million on the ITV1 show from 8pm.

Talented duo and current show favourites Jonathan, 17, and Charlotte, 16, were first paired together at West Hatch High School, in High Road, Chigwell.

They performed together at their school’s end-of-year concert last year and a sports ball to raise money for new sporting facilities.

Head of music Ginette Brown, who taught them for five years, said: “Their talent, work ethic and professionalism paid off and they are a credit to themselves, West Hatch and the music department.”

Popular band The Loveable Rogues, made up of Te Eugene, 18, of Ilford, Sonny Jay, 18, also a former West Hatch High School pupil of Chigwell and Eddie Brett, 20, of Chingford, wowed audiences in their semi-final performance earlier in the week.

They sang their own song, Lovesick, which earned them the most public votes.

The band has been together for two years and have performed at various concerts including a memorial for former West Hatch High teacher Anne Horne, after she died of cancer.

They have also played at The Cauliflower pub in High Road, Ilford.
